An authentic Italian dining experience, an award-winning wine list, and excellent service - that is what Costantino's Venda Bar & Ristorante is well known for in Providence, Rhode Island, and beyond.
This Italian wine bar and restaurant is located on DePasquale Plaza, across the square from Venda Ravioli at 275 Atwells Avenue, in the heart of historic Federal Hill - the Little Italy section of the capital city. Both Costantino's Venda Bar & Ristorante and Venda Ravioli are owned by the Costantino family.
Costantino's Venda Bar & Ristorante has a new executive chef and a new menu. The new menu - a dinner version of the authentic Italian food that is offered daily at Venda Ravioli - is the creation of Chef Salvatore Cefaliello and his protege, Chef Anthony Chiero. Both are responsible for the food that is served in Venda's caffe during the lunch hour. Chef Cefaliello remains in the kitchen at Venda, which is open for lunch seven days a week. Chef Chiero is in charge of the kitchen across the plaza at Costantino's Venda Bar & Ristorante, which is open for dinner nightly.
This beautiful Italian restaurant offers year-round dining on two floors, and outdoors on the flower-filled plaza during the warm weather months.
The extensive wine list offers vintages from Italy and other wine-producing parts of the world, including more than 20 wines by the glass.
The hours of operation for Costantino's Venda Bar & Ristorante changes with the seasons. The popular restaurant sometimes closes on Sunday for private parties, so it is recommended to call
to check on availability. Free valet parking is always offered.
All this is the latest chapter being written by the Costantino family, owners of Venda Ravioli, which has been making pasta for more than 70 years in the Old World tradition. Venda Ravioli is dedicated to teaching the public the importance of quality ingredients in food preparation. A complete line of Italian food and specialty products is available at Venda, and now that devotion to traditional Italian culture can also be sampled across the plaza at Costantino's Venda Bar & Ristorante.
